Servicing & support

We understand fantastic after care is essential for our customers.

That’s why we give all our customers the opportunity to join our service agreement plan once the warranty period on their lift has expired. This has been designed to keep your lift in the best possible condition, whilst giving you the reassurance that help is only a phone call away should a problem occur.

In the event of a call-out, we are committed to responding to our customers’ issues as quickly as possible. Our Freephone line is manned 24 hours a day (via an answerphone outside of normal working hours) and we will contact customers as soon as possible after a message has been left.

Please contact us free on 0800 169 3404 or 01275 870226 should a problem occur with your lift, or if you would like to discuss our service agreement plan, which includes an annual maintenance check and priority attention in the event of a break down.

In the event of a breakdown

All our products are reliable but like any piece of equipment, problems can occur from time to time.

The majority of these can be easily detected by running through the following check-list. Doing this yourself can avoid unnecessary call-out charges.

  • Reset the lift. Sometimes all that’s needed to get your lift going is a reset. Switch OFF all the individual switches on the lift, wait 10 minutes, and turn them all back on again.
  • Power to the lift. Is it switched on? Has the power supply on the wall accidentally been turned off? Are all of the lift’s individual switches turned on?
  • Anything in the way? Are there any obstructions on the staircase preventing the lift from moving? These could be pressing against the lift’s edges, triggering the safety switch and cutting the power supply.
  • Power cut. Has there been a loss of power to the whole building or area?
  • Fuses. Check your fuse box to ensure the switches have not tripped out.
  • Batteries. Check that the batteries in the remote control (supplied with the lift) have not gone flat – please note these are not covered under any warranty.
  • Parking. It is essential the lift is left in its correct parking position after use as this is how the lift’s batteries are recharged. A bleeping noise coming from the lift indicates it is not parked properly and the batteries are not on charge.
  • Key switch. Some stairlifts include key switches on the arm that can be removed to stop the lift working. Ensure the key is in its slot and turned to the correct operating position.

If your lift is still not working once you have completed the above checks, give our breakdown team a call on 01275 870226 to arrange for an engineer’s visit.

Please always refer to the relevant user manual for a more detailed troubleshooting guide.
